Review:

A statement of the Internet security problem and some solutions to it, Firewalls: A Complete Guide gauges the vulnerability of a typical Internet-connected network and shows how various kinds of firewalls can reduce the threat from outside. The result is informative; this resource will help you figure out what kind of firewall will do an adequate job for the smallest investment of time and money. Marcus Goncalves is known for the depth of his research and his detail-rich writing style--traits he exhibits here. You'll likely find support for a good network security plan in his book.

If you've never worked much with network security before, you'll be happy with (and probably terrified by) the security holes the author highlights, as well as the background information he provides on cryptography and other security technologies. Experienced hands will be more impressed by Goncalves's roundup of commercial firewall products (including Check Point Firewall-1, Sun Microsystems SunScreen, and more than a dozen others). The product profiles are more of a features comparison than a series of how-to guides, and you'll probably wish for pricing information, but the profiles ought to help you decide which products to investigate more closely. --David Wall

Topics covered: Internet connectivity, and the security risks posed by making Internet services available to users of a secure network (including specific security risks in Java, ActiveX, and other programming architectures). There's coverage of how a firewall fits into a comprehensive security strategy, and how to select a commercial firewall package.
